I trod on my pooor little fat guy last week. i was on the lounge, and lately he has been real sooky and wants to sit on you whereever you are. hes been climbing the bedside table to get in the bed, up the lounge up the table cloth (imagine 1 kg of glider climbing the table cloth?) anyhow i was watching tele and he was right under my feet about to climb up and as i hadnt seen or heard him in an hour thought he had gone back to bed, so i got up and trod on him <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" /> he snorted and jason was alerted and came running but i have good reflexes so i was off him in 1/2 a second. i didnt hurt him, i was panicing and worrying so i held him in my arms under the blanket for about an hour then he curled up on our chest and went to sleep while we pet him. i noticed his tail has 2 vetabrae moved/broken but hes not in pain. he must have broken it again a while back as they were not fresh breaks. anyhow apart from me standing on him hes happy, been eating lots of apple, bannana, tomatoe, glideraide, lori nectar, baby food, multi vitamins,and cherries.
Poss: Sadly i am unable to touch or feel you, but,My love, my heart and my soul will go on loving you forever. Nothing will ever take your place you are the most unique, the most special bundle of joy that has bought so much love into my life. I love you.

Amber, I'm going to move this to Real Stories, because this is SO easy to do. I've learned to shuffle when my gliders are out. It must be comical for whoever is around, but I'm so afraid that my floor-hopping gliders will end up under my foot in a split second. This is a good warning for all of us.

I'm so glad Poss is okay.

wow..when i read that i was thinking..omg..i nothing happened to poss!! i am glad to hear he is ok! We do that with our 5.5LB toy poode in my house. he is 10 years old and follows u everywhere u go so its very easy to step on him. He is small enough to hurt also. thanks for the reminder

I freaked out when I saw the title!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" /> I am so glad to hear that he's ok!! <img border="0" alt="clap" title="" src="graemlins/yelclap.gif" />

I've done this with my cats a few times, but they are a little bigger than Poss.

Pip--Wait a minute. I have to swallow to get my heart out of my throat and back where it belongs. OK, breathe Pep, breathe! Pip, thanks for letting me know I am still alive! The adrenaline rush I got should only last an hour or two. Don't do that to me again--really. I almost had to put some rum in my virgin daquiri to settle my nerves.

Now that you have been chastised properly, I am glad Poss is fine. I think that his tail probably got broken as his wait increased. He probably tried to use his slightly prehensile tail to lift his large girth like a jack on a car. LOL I love that glider! Long live King Poss!
